to search for the suspects. jackie? >> reporter: jim, the mail carrier is expected to survive his injuries. but this crime, this crime is causing outrage. he was left injured and tied up in the back of his u.s. postal service van. people in this neighborhood near catholic university are saddened and angry that someone who works hard to bring them their mail and packages in all kinds of weather was victimized, beaten, and robbed. it was just after 4:00 p.m. when according to law enforcement accounts, the mail carrier was confronted by two men near number 50 hawaii avenue northeast. at least one had a gun. they forced him back to his van where he was assaulted and robbed of his wallet and keys. it's not clear if any mail was stolen. neighbors are absolutely horrified. many say the carrier is like a family member to them. >> i've been knowing him for probably 10, 12 years. a little scary right now. come out and something like this happens. especially to somebody you know. >> i'm just devastated. i don't -- i hope that maybe -- i don't know if any neighbors were home. combination of retired pe
an act of aggression against ukraine. what's happening now and what does it all mean? nbc's jim maceda is in moscow. bill neely is in crimea. jim, we start with you in the russian capital there. what does that approval of putin's request to use russian troops mean? >> reporter: hi, craig. you're right. it is pretty symbolic. the legislative body that putin requested that use of force from is a rubber stamp, upper house of parliament. and it doesn't mean that putin will now send in more troops into crimea. there are thousands there already all part of russia's black sea fleet. large numbers have been seen there over the past 48 hours, securing airports, government buildings, telecom towers. what the approval does mean is it's official now. russians have been mobilized in crimea. they can now all put their patches back on. and the approval of course gives putin more options. it allows him to strike not only crimea but anywhere in ukraine. and of course that spikes the tension even higher. >> jim, any word at this point on a timetable? >> reporter: not that we're aware of, no. but i can t

's political and economic crisis? cnn chief national security correspondent jim sciutto explains. >> reporter: there's a lot of questions about russia's interest in the ukraine as well as the west. first a reminder here. ukraine is in europe not a million miles away, the capital few municipal-bond miles away that americans travel to all the time, paris, london, rome. western border key u.s. aslice, slovakia, hungary and romania, poland. ukraine not a member of nato but there's been talk about bringing them in. let's get a better sense of russia's interest there. you look at crimea. on the tip of that peninsula, the sevastopol military headquarters. access to the black sea, mediterranean, atlantic, essential for russia and first place that many of those 6,000 and even more russian troops went when they crossed the border from russia into crimea. sovereign ukrainian territory. let's look inside the country as well because there's a split. western part of the country here liens towards europe, 5% of the population in these parts speak ethnic russian. eastern part 75% here speak russian, ethnic f

to the base where it belongs and the only place it is authorized to be. chief national security court jim sciutto joins us from new york. jim, what are the options for the united states and what are the interests that signify that the u.s. should be involved? >> lets start with options first. secretary kerry was actually very explicit, more explicit than any administration officials have been so far in public about what is on the payable here. we heard in the last couple of days this idea of not going to sochi g-8 conference but kerry went further. he said for one, mentioned the possibility of expelling russia from g-8 entirely. that's a bigger step than just not showing up at their conference in sochi. that's a big step on the table. he also mentioned asset freezes of russian businesses and banks. this is interesting. senator bob corker, republican senator discussing measures considered on capitol hill. he mentioned this kind of thing, too, sanctioning russianentities and individuals. remember, russian businesses do a lot of business through the international financial markets, concentra

on ukraine. joining us now for a discussion of the coverage, jim pinkerton, contributing writer for the americany go zone and alan colmes, host of the alan colmes show, also a fox news contributor. let's get it underway, gentlemen. here is what that "the washington post" editorial says in its opening paragraph. for five years, president obama has led a foreign policy based more on how he thinks the world should operate than on reality. it was a world in which the tide of water is receding, quoting a president there, and the united states could, without much risk, radically reduce the size of its armed forces. other leaders in the vision would behave rationally and in the interest of their people and the world. invasions, brute force, great power, gains and shifting alliances. these were things of the past. so jim, the media are coming to a different point of view now? >> i think some are. "new york times" asked if obama tough enough and the "usa today" called it response late and lame, unquote. i th media, not unlike what happened with jimmy carter in the late 1970's when the ne
of a power grab. chief national security correspondent jim sciutto joins us. despite these exercises, troops mobilizing on the border, the obama administration seems confident russia will not be moving troops into ukraine? >> reporter: that's the pentagon's assessment they're not going to act. what's changed in the last 24 hours, because the russians have moved these troops, mobilized these war planes, put them on alert as well, if president putin decided he did want to go in they could poomove so quick u.s. would not have a chance to react to it. that's increased the level of nervousness among administration officials. what would the u.s. do in reaction? we're talking really about only diplomatic means, protests, et cetera. because the supreme nato commander and american general breedlove says europe is not planning certainly any military reaction if the russians were to go in. >> it would be a huge deal if they went in obviously. the question is what would happen inside the ukraine. people there, the country dividing. what about putin? i know he spoke to president obama by phone last week.
. here's nbc's jim maceda who has more from moscow. >> reporter: putin now has his hand on the russian crown jewel. crimea gives putin an essential warm water port, and it counters in his mind the nightmare scenario. that's what he sees as an ultranationalist government suddenly cancelling russia's lease on the black see base and kiev taking control of crimea and then joining nato down the line, bringing the enemy, in his mind, right back to russia's doorstep. so vladimir putin has made that calculus, and it's now unclear just what the west can do about it. chuck, back to you. >> thank you, jim. right now, according to folks i've talked to, the u.s. has three options, none of them involve the u.s. military. the first, the u.s. could move along with european allies to officially suspend or kick russia out of the g8. that would be symbolic. second, the administration could pursue its own sanctions that target russian banks as well as international sanctions, targeting russian oil companies. third, the u.s. may convince the european union to cancel some of its energy contracts with russia
more widespread outages by the end of the day. jim cantore has the latest for us from washington, d.c. >> reporter: how about this, winter's just cranking it out here. we've seen our temperature go from 37 degrees down to 17 degrees, so we've dropped 20 degrees since midnight. 20 degrees. of course, if you think about what happened to the roads yesterday around 50, now we refreeze them and you have a solid cake sitting on these road surfaces. cars are moving, because it's pretty flat, but once you start getting on a hill or two, in and around washington and baltimore, it gets ugly. i'll tell you, if we can get this stuff up by about 2:00 this afternoon once this precipitation begins to taper off, we're going to make headway on the roads. tonight again, single digit temperatures. the normal high for the day is 51 degrees in washington. the normal low is 34. we will start tomorrow at 9 and maybe, maybe get to 31 for a high. we won't even touch our normal low temperature tomorrow, so very, very cold there with whatever's melted underneath is going to cause problems. so far looks like w
stone sat police headquarters now with the latest. shomari? >> reporter: well, jim, tonight d.c. police are searching for killer of this teen. i talked to a lot of folks in southeast, and they tell me that they are sick and tired of the gun violence. tonight's victim marks the 20th homicide this year in the district. keep in mind, there were a total of 12 by this time last year. tonight we're learning more about this latest murder. a law enforcement source tells me the 18-year-old was standing on the 4300 block of halley terrace southeast. suddenly, someone shot him in the neck, and he died shortly before 6:00 this evening. police are questioning people in the neighborhood to try and get a lead on this case. meanwhile, people who live in the area want the violence to stop. >> i feel like it is a broken home. another mom has to bury their child, and another family is just in pieces tonight. >> reporter: now, i have the name of this latest victim. police tell me that they are in the process of notifying his relatives. and i won't release it out of respect for the family. live here in nort

. >> "news4 at 4" starts right now. >> i'm barbara harrison in for jim handly. >> and i'm pat larson muse. we have new information of what to expect for the sunday storm? >> let's get to amelia segal and what is coming our way? >> well, barbara starting sunday evening the rain will be moving into the area during the overnight hours into monday morning where we will see a period of mix. that includes the potential for ice before it turns over to all snow for the majority of the day on monday. coming up in a little bit, i will have much more on the storm, and before we get to monday morning, we will have the weekend to enjoy, and i will have the forecast, pat. >> thank you, amelia, and the first wave of the powerful storm is hammering much of southern california, and we are seeing flooded roads and mud slides in the same communities that dealt with wildfires recently, and today's storm has knocked out power to 14,000 people and caused a bunch of accidents. we will go live to one area in california where they have evac waited 1,000 homes and expecting 7 inches of rain. >>> it is one of the scari
not even remain in the g-8. >> we go directly to nbc's jim maceda in moscow. jim, what are we to make of president putin's actions here? >> reporter: hi, eric. so far, it's playing out very much along the old soviet playbook, isn't it? you have russia asked to intervene in crimea by russian compatriots under threat. putin had got the use of force and 24 hours later, russian forces have pretty much neutralized crimea without firing a shot. so he's already attained his key short-term goal, anyhow, and i think that's reminding kiev and reminding the west that vladimir putin can't be cut out of ukraine's future. and that he truly is prepared to use his facility anywhere in ukraine, if used to defend his interests. and that doesn't seem to worry him at all, this idea of consequences, for him not going or going to the g-8 or whoever comes to the g-8 doesn't seem to be a big issue. his larger goal, analysts tell us, is to bring ukraine into a kind of soviet economic union, something that would rival the eu. okay, that doesn't look very likely now that kiev is going pro-west, but they say put
joining me now from moscow is nbc's jim maceda. jim, with a good evening to you. a lot of diplomatic salvos being tossed back and forth here. but what's happening on the ground in crimea? >> reporter: hi, alex. you're right. it's hard to keep up with them all. tonight, crimea looking pretty much neutralized. russian forces have now been moving freely around the peninsula for a couple of days because they are mostly off the streets. they and the armed vigilante groups, if you will, are in control. airport, the telecommunication towers. today as you alerted, units of russian troopser driving to various ukrainian military posts trying to persuade the ukrainian soldiers to hand over their weapons. and then surrounding the posts of those who refuse to disarm. just taking them out of operation. so despite all of the appeals that we're hearing from the united states, from kiev. from the west in general, those diplomatic salvos, as you call them, to put his forces, putin's forces back, to pull them back, crimea today effectively is in vladimir putin's hands, alex. >> okay. so, jim, the new u

, and the world bank president jim kim contravening -- all contributing to answer that question. with this is the lincoln editor -- >> you left off that you are one of those people -- >> and several members of our newsroom road to the best advice. but let's not talk about me. let's talk about other people first. what were some of the highlights? >> if you look overall, the incredible advice given to people at times when they were really down or really questioning their own futures. one of my favorite is the founder of angie's list. 22 years old, graduated from college, doesn't know what to do. an entrepreneur said "start a company with me in columbus." she has a job at a consultancy firm and she's hemming and hawing and she talks to her grandfather and he says to her, "what is the difference between being 22 and looking for a job and a year from now being 23 and looking for a job? take the risk." she took the wrist and went to angie's list -- >> that is a great question. >> on the other end of the spectrum, the chairman of yahoo!, 68 years old talking about engaging a second act
that codified regulation that recalls back to the worst excesses of jim crow. >> it's not the first time arizona has gotten into an issue here with the n.f.l. the n.f.l. did take a position back in 1993 the n.f.l. pulled the super bowl out of address because it refused to recognize martin luther king jr. day and that was quick. it was only a matter of hours after the vote that this commissioner paul tagligu decided no the to do that is romminger goodell amend today's n.f.l. just not as strong as the n.f.l. was back then? >> it's interesting. paul taglibu was a commissioner who had a record of trying to do the right thing even if it was not in the best interest of ownership. if you look at all of roger goodell's decisions, it's about disciplining players and never about disciplining ownership. this would have been one of those cases where it would have hurt the bottom line of the n.f.l. if they tried to pull a move off like this because the event you mentioned, paul taglibu said we will pull the super bowl. he announced that in 90. they said we will celebrate martin luther king's holiday and tagl
-ukrainian protest all around the country by everyone, which is understandable. i think jim was count putin -- i think putin was counting on new love the pictures for the television counting onn was the bloody pictures for the television cameras. russia keeps putting himself forward and forward into situations that putin has not anticipated and then finds himself doing things that are probably even worse than he planned. where this is going for russia is not good. whether or not the western states impose sanctions, it will be a disaster for the russian economy. it is very possible that russians are going to be denied normal visas and therefore travel around europe -- it is very likely, indeed, the russian elite will feel a hit with freezing of account things like this. putin will try to argue this confirms his own view that russia is all alone in the kind of superior national civilization facing the world conspiracy which depends upon the mood and depends upon the audience other made up of nazis or gays can't international response won't try to confirm that ideology. in the long run, this is not
